Are you kidding me? The mississippi halfstep, the minglewood, the stagger lee, the friend of devil, the big railroad, the looks like rain, this is one of the best first sets I've ever heard.

Subject: my first show
well, everybody has a first show, and this was mine (#1 of 99). shrooms, alcohol, bud, etc and I didn't know any dead tunes. "it's all over now" and "NFA" were the only songs i heard before.

first set was clean, crisp and lively...

china rider>samson>hes gone>spoonful>good times was awesome before drums. was ready to rock out during the encore but jerry lullabied us with "baby blue", kept me wanting more....
98 more to be exact!

First set was rock solid. 2nd saw a bit of an energy dip. BUT, Never Trust/Good Times is the best I have ever heard. And frankly, so is the Throwing Stones/NFA combo!

Subject: Jerry hangs in for Spoonful
Though this show didn't top yesterday, the first set was extremely rocking and there were no low points in the first set.

He's Gone was cool but Jerry's guitar was halfway off when Bobby started Spoonful, Jerry hung in there and faced his amp for the whole song and played little. He left for drums just as the song ended but Brent hung around to give us another tune before drums. Not too much happend afer drums
